This event has ended.
Hiroaki Yoshioka’s first solo show in Tokyo will showcase seven new paintings. Through the use of two processes with conflicting qualities–abstract expression and industrial manufacturing–Yoshioka, who describes his own artistic practice as “a search for the contradiction between the relationship of the two-dimensional image and the painting itself,” attempts to depict an authentic image which cannot be strictly classified as either painting or sculpture. All the works in this exhibition are created through the process of adhering “canvas copies” onto supports. These “copies” are obtained by applying multiple layers of paint to an engraved silicone plate modeled from a 89.5” x 71.5” canvas. While each picture plane is original, the paintings can be established as copies having the same index, visually challenging the objective experience of viewing a single object.
